Fall 2015 Update & New Additions

The temperatures are getting colder here in Zone 5.  Some of my plants seem to be enjoying the cooler weather on my basement grow rack.  I thought I would post some photos of plants that I think are looking pretty good right now.  You’ll also notice some new additions.

Pinguicula agnata ‘El Lobo’ – new addition, love the color.

Pinguicula cyclosecta

Stylidium debile – debates continue on whether this plant is carnivorous or protocarnivorous.  Grown for its pretty flower.  Commonly known as the “frail trigger plant.”

Nepenthes burkei x hamata – bonus points if you can locate the spider!

Nepenthes eymae x trusmadiensis – love the “candy-striped” peristome.

Drosera aliciae – repotted this one after the crown divided and formed a new plant.

Drosera burmannii – my 2nd variety of this species.  My other variety is pure green; this one is developing a nice pale pink/red coloration.
